  • Definitely not. They are cool looking critters though.

  • No they aren't. I grew up in the desert. They reproduce like wild fire.

  • I heard they were. I can't give you a positive yes or no though.

  • Never heard that......my friends kids can find a whole community of them! So I highly doubt they're that endangered.

  • NOPE! You can order them and introduce them to your garden, as they are beneficial insects--they eat all the bad insects.
